Fantasy baseball: Jose Abreu leads the way in Chicago

Jose Abreu is part of a power surge in Chicago that has certainly elevated the value of all White Sox hitters. AP

Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu certainly seemed to enjoy his weekend, smashing six home runs in the three games at Wrigley Field, giving him 11 blasts with 28 RBI in 29 games. For the week, Abreu hit seven home runs and knocked in 15, which should result in Player of the Week honors. Abreu is now the No. 6 option on the season-long ESPN Player Rater, which should be of only mild surprise. Then again, fantasy managers seemed kind of disinterested in the slugger back in preseason drafts, overlooking his valuable career credentials.
